Passenger injuries in Mississippi
Passengers are vulnerable to the same injuries as drivers, including head trauma and broken bones. Whatever the cause of the accident, it is very likely that someone other than the passenger was responsible for his injuries.
In Mississippi, auto insurance coverage is a must for all drivers. In the event of an accident resulting in injury to a passenger, this coverage will be used to pay for damages suffered by a passenger so that they can begin to rebuild their lives.
Typically, filing a claim against an insurance company only results in a settlement offer so small that it might not even cover the plaintiff’s basic medical expenses. Whenever an adjuster makes an initial offer, you should speak with an experienced Mississippi personal injury attorney before accepting it.
Passengers are in a unique position when it comes to car accidents in Mississippi. An injured passenger is rarely responsible for the incident, but that does not mean that he is less likely to sustain injuries in an accident.
